Manipulate [Ambient] continues the experimentation of Manipulate [Sound] with the utmost experimentation of sound. This time it specifically surrounds the ambient genre. The same effects manipulations and parameter automation were used for this project as before, just with more reverb and delay added. This paved the way for the drone projects I would do later on in 2007. http://sethmol.wordpress.com/2010/11/30/sml004-w-x-manipulate-ambient/

. is a 3 part series featuring the best material from w.x. Since 2007, Ian Witzel has been releasing music covering a varied selection of genres under the name w.x. He has since decided to retire that name and expand the horizons of his music. After 5 years and over 20 releases the time has come to lay w.x to rest. This compilation features an assortment of different styles and textures ranging from harsh experimental noise to the more ethereal ambient and drone. You can now get the entire 3...

This album's droning textures create a catatonic atmosphere, expressing the bleakness that this world sometimes shows us. Its tones submerge you into a dark environment where things can be frightening and it can feel like all hope is lost. Through each song this world becomes more like reality and acceptance sets in, forcing into your mind the idea that nothing is lost; it is merely traveling at a different pace than you. Incapacitation is a lesson in not giving up and striving towards righting...

Noise. Harsh, aggressive, ear-splitting dog howling noise. These songs were created either from pure raw emotions or very wayward experimentation. There are layers upon layers of distortion on top of mutilated synthesizer tracks. The goal was to emulate the true feelings of some of mankind's more untamed emotions, such as hatred, rage and animosity. At times hearing these emotions played out can be unbearable but they are meant to expose the true beast in all of us.

"Transmigration" was forged by two main concepts: nature and change. They both go hand in hand. Nature is constantly changing. Human beings, being a part of nature, are also constantly changing. Sometimes we do not have a say in what changes in our lives. There are times where we can uproot and take our troubles to another world and start all over. Though we can’t control every aspect of our lives, we ultimately change because of the decisions we have made. These decisions are not...

Dream Nebula is an assortment of ambient noise tracks recorded in the summer of 2007. Some tracks lean towards drone and are very experimental. http://sethmol.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/sml006-w-x-dream-nebula/

"Hailstone" is a reflection on weather and nature. By taking the darker aspects of weather and combining them with a subtle organic optimism, w.x has created an environmental journey that tears down our cynical views of life. Drenched with delays and drones, this is an atmospheric treat for the masses. This will be the last release under the "w.x" name. Keep in touch as bigger and better things are on the horizon. Tracks: 1. Glacial Mass (4:05) 2. Black Hole At the Center of...

Set some time aside and just go away to a place of comfort. It could be found in your favorite getaway, deep inside your mind, or both at the same time. We all need a source of escape in these dreadful times. A place where we can forget the stresses and negativity of the world and find solace, insight and peace. A place untouched by modern desecration and lovingly embraced by the arms of nature. Here, you can sink into the tapestries of life and time itself seems to stop as you recharge your...

“Certain Species” is the opening track from my next album, "Transmigration", set to be released 08 September. This song is an homage to the migratory patterns of animals. Only certain species migrate every year and some migrate continuously their entire lives. There are many perils and struggles on this path but it is what makes them unique on this planet. The atmospheric tones and revolving patterns reflect the circular process of our existence and how it is our nature to do what...

I recently accosted thescientist with some raw tracks along with the stems from my song "In the Middle of Ill". I have been anxiously wanting to collaborate lately and thescientist is always willing to tweak whatever sounds come his way. He took what I sent him and forged a twisted blend of our unique styles. The songs feature my trippy ambient drones alongside his progressive electro manipulation. This release is a true sonic fusion of genres. You get the sensation of being inside a...

After taking a break from music a going back through my old catalog, I started to gain a sense of the true nature of my music. It is an intense tidal wave crashing down on the shores. It requires endurance and commitment. In an effort to branch out of this dark and depressing box I wanted to go a different direction. Drones and electronic tremors still fluctuate but in a softer vein, more soothing to the soul. The rhythmic synthesizer adds a level of time and rhythm leaving room for sounds to...

Densitometry is made up of 9 songs that are spread out onto 11 tracks. This album is a statement against confining songs into the strict beginning and end of a track. Some songs are split into two tracks with a new song starting on the second track. Other songs are cut in half and are separated from each other by other songs. The music itself is a series of soundscapes crafted with ambient drones and minor distortion. It's an album you can lose yourself in and not care about what track you are...

Multi is two synthesizers with sequenced notes fed through a vocoder. Each track in this experiment follows this basic setup with added parameters and varying tempos. Most tracks add onto the previous one in two successive sequences: A and B.

This is the second attempt at melding the genres of noise and drone together. Error: 02 is 5 experimental tracks, drenched in reverb, delay and distortion. They create an agitated yet comforting mood, ideal for trying to digest the tribulations of a strange day or lifetime. Though this project is highly experimental in nature, moods and emotions are still evoked. This is entirely without intention and the main purpose is to see what happens when two opposite ends of the musical spectrum come...
